An episode-by-episode analysis and critique of the television show Queer as Folk. The show started airing in December 2000, and we discuss how gay life has changed, or stayed the same 15 years later. At the end of each episode we ask the question of whether the episode's content still holds up today.
Vince turns 30 and Stuart throws a birthday party for him, apparently without much help from Cameron, who gives Vince a car for his birthday. Not to be outdone, Stuart gives Vince a much more adored Dr Who K-9 robot. Stuart realizes that he’s holding Vince back from being happy with Cameron, and orchestrates an unforgivable act by inviting Rosalie to Vince’s birthday party and then outing him, knowing that this will at least temporarily drive Vince away from him.
UK-1.6 Meet the Parents
Vince and Cameron's relationship starts to show cracks as Stuart’s hold on Vince becomes more and more obvious to Cameron. Stuart is forced to confront his own parents about their pending divorce while his own role as a parent is brought into question when Romey announces that she is marrying Lance in order for him to secure a visa.
UK-1.5 The Date
Hazel begins to think that Nathan is taking advantage of her when he stays out all night. Vince lands himself a date with sexy Australian accountant Cameron Roberts, and winds up short one cell phone, but up one hot tongue kiss. Stuart gets a visit from his sister Marie who asks him to babysit her two sons, but instead takes out his closeted client, Martin Brooks, where he runs into Nathan and later Vince and Cameron.
Traveling north for Phil’s funeral, Vince delivers an amusing reading at the service and meets a delightful accountant named Cameron. Back in Manchester, Nathan hooks up with Christian Hobbs and then Stuart much to Vince's consternation.
UK-1.3 A Night Out
We're making select episodes of Still Queer as Folk UK available in our US show feed. Hope you like these encore episodes of Still Queer as Folk! Nathan continues his quest for Stuart and trails him to a series of bars on Canal Street, only to find that Stuart has orchestrated a threesome with the hottest two guys in Babylon.
UK-1.2 Stuart Alan Jones
Nathan is still glowing from his all night f******t with Stuart Alan Jones and sets off for Canal Street in search of him. Things are going well enough for the teenager until he stalks Stuart to his flat only to find him about to test out a chap named Goodfuck (or Collin, as we find out). Vince is set up with one of his employees after they mistakenly think that he’s straight.

Still Queer as Folk
Perfect ending to the podcast even if the actually show had a TERRIBLE ending ❤️
Do they even like the show?
The podcast started out fun, discussion of episode themes, characters and poking fun at the sillier aspects of the show. Now, all they do is critique the making of the show. They don’t even act like they like the show, it’s subject matter, or understand or even care to understand the characters. Ugh. Hate it.
I don’t know why you guys came back, but I’m so glad you did, and you’re dong the UK version, cool! I’d love to hear Patrick finally unleash all of his UK vs US opinions lol
And! Finally! Somebody who agrees with me about Brian and Justin! I like them together, but not as intensely the way most people seem to, and Ethan was better for Justin until they made him cheat because they couldn’t figure out a better way to write him off.
